Facilitating a series of BarCamps

Back to Overview

Facilitating a thriving, open discussion is one of my favorite things to do. Not only is it fun to get people involved, it’s also usually rewarding and informative for everyone.

I worked together with the German professional social network XING to stage 10 BarCamp conferences across Austria, Switzerland and Germany. BarCamps are open, participatory, user-generated workshop events, the content of which is provided by participants. I not only hosted the events, but also facilitated participant-led organization to lead to the best possible outcomes.

The participants were HR professionals from all kinds of SMEs as well as bigger corporations. Topics discussed included the best recruiting strategies, employer branding and how to take advantage of social media in the candidate-finding process.
